Squid Game might be a popular series on Netflix, but there is one aspect of the show that fans seemingly dislike. The #Netflix #SquidGame series has had it’s English-language acting scrutinized by fans, but why is the Squid Game English-language acting so bad? In an interview with The Guardian, Squid Game’s John D. Michaels said, “It’s different for every show, but non-Korean performers often act with dialogue that is translated by a non-native – sometimes even by Google Translate – so it can sound unnatural.” In the same interview, Michaels also notes that the acting in Squid Game is heightened, which is typical for Korean dramas. This is what Squid Game dubbed be like, as the Squid Game meme goes. In other entertainment news, director James Gunn explains why he felt the original ending for Suicide Squad was a bit too dark. And finally, some sad news in the Dragon Ball community. Voice actor Chris Ayres has died at the age of 56.
